FBI raids Muncie Sanitary District, two people charged

A three-year investigation by the FBI led to the arrest of the Muncie Sanitary District administrator and a local businessman Tuesday afternoon.

The Muncie Star Press says Debra Nicole Grigsby of Muncie, and Tony Franklin of Yorktown, have been indicted by a U.S. District Court grand jury on charges of wire fraud and falsification of documents in a federal investigation.

The FBI says Grigsby agreed to steer work for MSD projects to Franklin’s company, in exchange for kickbacks. If convicted on all counts, Grigsby and Franklin would each face up to 20 years in prison.
